Seems like this discussion was better when it was in the main discussion forum. It affects more then just Illustrators. Also, the thread title could be clearer. Maybe "Raster Illustration Discussion"

It seems strange that 3D illustrations are not being transferred to the Illustration category. If the goal is to make it clear that Photos means photographs, then it seems like it would be best to also move the 3D generated illustrations over too.

Looks like you missed my previous post. Here it is again for your reference:

Agreed, it might not be ideal, however we are still addressing the fact that about 50,000 raster illustrations are currently listed as 'photos'. That'll soon change and this content will finally move to their proper 'Illustration' category. So that's a huge win in my books :)


If you read back through the thread so far you'll find this has been reiterated several times already: This project only affects raster illustrations, not 3D renders.

You know what, the discussion is linked in the discussion forum to come back here. So I can't see the issue. I moved it and I reckon I have a pretty good idea as to why it should be in here. The title is fine, the move is fine, sorry if you aren't the boss of titles and thread moves.

I apologize if the question is not related, but as it is a raster illustrations topic, i think there may be something to do. I wonder if we can create things like raster ferraris, iphones, etc and put this as editorial stuff. How Istock see it?

Hang on, let's not get to far ahead of ourselves. Editorial is an entirely different beast. You can going into that discussion here:

Editorial Deconstructed

Take a read through it before you just post, though. There are lots of good comments and you might find someone had already added your points about illos and Editorial.

Actually, I had read the entire thread and saw the post, I was just offering my opinion (and agreeing with the other people who've posted about it) that it seems strange to not include 3D illustrations in the move. I think that most people if shown one of the many thousands of 3D renders here on istock would classify it as a illustration rather than a photo.

I can appreciate that you have opinions, however this discussion isn't about what's happening with 3D renders. If you'd like to start another thread that's fine but please let's keep this thread on topic.

Sorry to take this OT again - I'm not the right person to start a new thread on the subject of 3D renders! - but, speaking wearing my buyers hat, I would rather see 3D renders with illustrations than photos.


As you were!

Posted By yogysic: Will the icons be different between Vector and Raster Illustration?


I have an update on this for you

The good (bad?) news is on the Search pages, rasters will indeed be getting the Illustration icon after all. We know the little pen icon isn't the best for rasters but we do plan to look at alternatives. But at launch, expect to see this little guy underneath both raster and vector illustrations.

In that case, does it really make sense to include scanned historic engravings/etchings in illustrations? They're not something we've created ourselves, though we have usually needed to do a lot of Photoshop work on them to get rid of the bleed-through, ink smudges and general gunge.

Any hand created illustration will need to be scanned or photographed (paintings, sketches, etc). Engraving and etching are just another medium for illustration so yes, we still feel they belong under 'Illustration' rather than the 'Photography' category.

Understood - I thought it might be worth asking though! What really bothers me is that although you have assured us that RC targets will not change, can we really believe that this will not change in the future?


"This also applies to our current Redeemed Credit targets: They will be staying the same. So if you're a JPEG illustrator your RCs will be included in the Photo targets while vector targets will remain separate."

This worries me as well. I am not an illustrator, I am a photographer of heritage images.

The easy and fair answer is to make all the targets the same as they should have been from the beginning. Illustrators pay a higher percentage to iStock than photographers.

It will actually be counterproductive for me to upload raster illustrations with two different targets to hit.

"In the meantime, we'd recommend you add the general 'Illustrations and Vector Art' category to your raster work if you haven't already:"


"…rasters will indeed be getting the Illustration icon after all. We know the little pen icon isn't the best for rasters but we do plan to look at alternatives. But at launch, expect to see this little guy underneath both raster and vector illustrations."


How is this not going to be confusing to buyers? CSA_Images has a lot of black & white line art that can easily be mistaken for vectors. I also have black & white jpegs that will be mistaken for vectors.

There will be a filter for anyone who wants to search for only vectors, and the file types will be clearly visible on the file closeup page.

RCs really aren't my department so any questions about them might be better off in another thread. For this project launch, the RCs are staying the way they've been since we split the file types, so if you contribute both JPEGs and vector illustrations nothing is changing for you in terms of RC targets.

how will you define and tell apart this in 3d or pasteurized vector? on the eye?
